Grilled Garlic Parmesan Chicken

Summer time is the time for grilling.  I'm not sure why because it's always so blazing hot outside then you are standing over a blazing hot fire!  I would rather do that, though, than heat up my house!  I guess I shouldn't complain because I love the taste of anything grilled!

Strawberry Lemonade Cake

I consider myself a person with manners and try not make a fool of myself too often.  There are moments of weakness though and this Strawberry Lemonade Cake was one of them.  Once I had made it I wanted to face plant right on top of it!
It just looked so refreshing to me and I couldn't stop thinking about it!  In fact, I had made it before church a couple of weeks ago and it was all I could think about during the service!  Bad, I know.
Amazing!!!  This Strawberry Lemonade Cake would be perfect for any spring or summer party!  |  mynameissnickerdoodle.com



I shared this on Instagram over the weekend because it totally struck a chord with me.  Sometimes all I do is dream and wish.  Is it bad to have hopes and dreams?


Orange Chicken

I didn't eat a whole lot of Chinese food growing up.  We lived in a small town in Wyoming and there really wasn't a whole lot of take out options.  It wasn't until we moved to Las Vegas that I had my first Sweet and Sour Chicken and I was hooked.  Being a picky eater it was the only Chinese food I would eat.
I married a guy who is completely adventurous when it comes to food.  He'll eat pretty much anything and try everything new.  He grew up eating Chinese food and introduced me to Orange Chicken and other great dishes.  Again I was hooked on the Orange Chicken!
This Orange Chicken recipe taste so much better than anything you could order from take out!  And there is no deep frying!  |  mynameissnickerdoodle.com


Summer Fruit Salad

I have a habit of creating a great recipe then making it over and over again within day and weeks of first having it.  My family tends to get really tired of it the second go around, so that's when I share them with my friends!  I'm still not sure if it's a good or bad habit, but I just can't help myself with it's so good!
This Summer Fruit Salad was one of those "recipes" and I use that term loosely.  I mean how can you can call you call chopping up fruit and tossing it in a secret dressing a recipe?  Oh, the dressing!
This Summer Fruit Salad looks absolutely delicious and refreshing!  There is a secret dressing that puts it over the top!  |  mynameissnickerdoodle.com


Tropical Ice Cream Sandwiches

Sometimes I think that all of these wacky "National" whatever days are a little much.  Then there are days like National Ice Cream Day that I can totally get behind!  I mean, a whole day just to celebrate ice cream?  Yes, please!

Peach and Blueberry Crisp

Fruit crisps have kind of become my new go to dessert!  Typically every likes them and they are really easy to make!  Plus, you can make them with different seasonal fruits and get a whole new flavor.
Along with peeling and freezing peaches for our smoothies, I've been peeling peaches for crisps as well.  I can't seem to get enough of them! 
These Peach and Blueberry Crisp is as delicious as it is gorgeous!  The recipe is super easy, too!  |  mynameissnickerdoodle.com

It's hard to believe that summer is half over!  Well, for us in Texas it is.  I planned for our summer to be super low key with a few things here and there to look forward to.  Trips to downtown Austin (where we live), swimming holes, local summer events, outdoor movies and of course, trips to the sno cone hut!
I posted a few pics yesterday of our outing of my handsome little boys.  We went with friends who also only have boys in their house so it's nice to get out and let them be crazy together!
